Meem (Michael Moebus) is a respected and prolific music producer, DJ and radio host – whose inimitable style of funk, disco, soul & electro-boogie has kept dancefloors shaking for over 15 years.
In the late 90’s Meem began performing live at underground dance parties in Canberra (illegal forest parties, art galleries and aquariums) and soon catapulted from a shy art-school raver to a highly sought after live electronic act – performing at The Big Day Out, Sydney Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, Triple J Groove Train, Parklife, and Field Day. Meem has supported international heavyweights such as Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Jamie Lidell, and he has showcased his live and DJ performances in London, Manchester, San Francisco, L.A., island beach parties in Croatia, and summer festivals throughout Eastern Europe.
As a sought after DJ, Meem has supported international acts including Thievery Corporation, and Tom Findlay (Groove Armada). Bringing a diverse and expansive music collection to each gig, Meem blends a broad range of styles and genres including funk, disco, hip-hop, beats, afro, dancehall, reggae, dub, latin, jazz, gypsy, rhythm & blues, jump blues and boogie.
As a weekly testament to his love of funk music (and all its related styles), Meem also hosts the long-running and much-loved radio program Back to Funk, broadcasting every Monday afternoon on 2SER 107.3FM. Broadcasting since 1980 years, Back To Funk is Australia’s longest running funk music program.
Meem has also achieved design notoriety by releasing almost every release in limited edition, and often handmade, packaging. Destined to become collector’s items, covers have been crafted from wood, cotton, felt and vinyl upholstery. Meem’s CD design has been featured in the UK publication ‘CD – Art: Innovation in CD Packaging Design’ by Charlotte Rivers, alongside cover art for The Pet Shop Boys and design by Andy Warhol. His designs were also included in the Spanish publication ‘Graphic Beats: Independent Record Covers & Packaging Design’ by Miquel Abellon, alongside cover art for Martin Solveig and The Rolling Stones.
DJ DAIGO //
I love to mash & blend tracks that i’ve always loved & revered but with my own beats & pieces thrown together with my twisted ideology.
BENNY HINN //
Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.
The Hinn has also toured with the MOS Label for an Annual release and has supported many artists such as, The Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Jay Jay, Sneaky Sound System, The Resin Dogs, Katalyst, Sarah Love, Shortee Blitz, Frenzie, Total Eclipse, Mr. Doris, Cool Hand Luke, Normski, DJ Katch, DJ A.$.K, DJ KC, Edseven, Inkswel, Omegaman, Busta, Koolism, [love] Tattoo, Mark Dynamix, Ajax [RIP], Bang Gang, Goodwill, Alex Taylor, Funktrust, Purple Sneaker DJs + many many more…
Benny has also been dipping into a little production here and there with a few little mashes and beats all up on his soundcloud & mixcloud page & is host of the Radio Program Sydney Underground on Bondi Beach Radio.
His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
